The PICO - 4GB Handheld PCM/MP3 Recorder from Nagra is a solid-state audio recorder designed to capture PCM WAV files as well as MP3 files. It features 4GB of internal storage, a stereo pair of built-in high-sensitivity cardioid mics and over 40 hours of operation on two AA batteries.

The PICO handheld recorder offers extra options like automatic gain control, a low cut filter, and VOR sound-activated recording. It is also fitted with several pre-programmed equalizer settings to enhance playback. Additionally, the PICO provides no-nonsense operation with features like instant start-up, one-button recording and an internal speaker.

Mono or Stereo Recording
The Nagra PICO has both mono and stereo recording options. Mono recording is a good option for any recording without spatial parameters, like a one-on-one interview. Recording in mono effectively cuts the file size in half, allowing you to fit longer recordings onto the 4GB internal storage.
Volume Operated Recording
Volume Operated Recording (VOR) is accomplished by monitoring the input sound level. When sound rises above a certain level, PICO begins recording. When sound level is faint, it stops. There are 3 preset sensitivity levels built in to PICO.
Power for an External Mic
PICO can provide 3V power to supply external electret microphones.
Noise Cut Switch
Noise Cut decreases low-frequency noise by adding a high pass filter at 100 Hz.
Playback EQ
PICO has 7 EQ modes for playback: Normal, Classic, Fullbass, Jazz, Pop, Rock and Dance.
